I have a black 92 Renegade as well, The above links will provide you some background information. Also the wrangler renegade registry has some good information, although I do not think the site is being maintained much if at all.
Here is what I discovered about mine, if you go wheeling in it you may crack a fender, mostly because of the way the front bumper and the fender interact if you hit something. It happened to me on the first day. So I trmmed the bottom 4 or 5 five inches of the fender and removed the front bumper cover. If you want to install tow hooks in the factory location you will have to cut the bumper to accommodate them.
I for one like the look of the Renegade and enjoy mine quite a bit. I hope you enjoy yours.
Both of mine came with a lot uf upgrades that I don't see many other jeeps have. Mopar AC, 20 Gal gas tank, full carpet, under hood insulation, leather steering wheel, the wheels were different (had black jeep logo).locking center console, int. wipers, rear defrost. That's all I can remember for now. In MA I have only seen two others.
It was about a $4500 + option and they came loaded. I've owned mine since "92" and when I lived in the Sierra's it was off-road every weekend. I have never had problems with the plastic, but mine was lifted from day one giving it more room for the tires to move. They were hated by some when they came out because of the plastic fenders "not a pure all metal jeep". That feeling has carried over today even though the new jeeps have ugly black plastic fenders which stick out just as far. I never cared for the front & rear bumper so I added a new more useful front and rear bumper and did some triming on the front. Enjoy your Rene they are few ( I think about 5000 built each year) and many in the east have rusted out. I'm about 3/4 of the way in my complete restoration, inside is done, motor is done, still saving for new springs, an 8.8 and lockers front and rear, This will be added to my desert toys so the grandkids can follow us around.
I know this an old thread but wanted to Add that I just picked up a nearly bone stock 93 renegade they are with out a doubyt love it or hate it vehicle I love it an dhave been waiting for a deal on one. I have all options but rear defrost no biggie. Gonna leave it basically stock maybe some fresh paint next spring and 1" shackles with 31s.
mine is in overall good shape the plastic is all good no cracks or anything the frame and tub are also very nice the big downer is the PO had the Black renegade in a garage while he was spray painting a van white, the entire driverside is speckled with white paint that i cannot remove Laquer thinner kind of gets it off but it is rough. It appears also that the PO spilled something on the hood that burned through the clear coat so maybe next year I'll do a repaint. actually this is the first YJ I have ever had that I am planning on keeping i am typically a CJ guy
